The 14th-seeded 14-year-old upset top-seeded Valencia Xu 6-2, 6-0 in front of a capacity crowd and the Tennis Channel cameras to capture the USTA Billie Jean King Girls 16 National Championships singles title at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego, California.

A blue chip rising sophomore from Whitewater, Wisconsin, Brantmeier earned the right to celebrate after taking down the top two seeds in the semifinals and finals. She became only the second player from Wisconsin to win the singles title in the event’s history. Teri Whitlinger of Neenah, Wisconsin was the champion in 1985.

“This is absolutely incredible,” said Brantmeier, who lost in the Girls 14s Hard Courts final two years ago. “I really haven’t had time to think yet. It’s still so amazing. I have been trying for a gold ball for a long time.”
